Upon arriving at an all-male brothel where he is welcomed as a regular, controversial Irish scribe Oscar Wilde (Nickolas Grace) is treated to a surprise performance of his recently banned work of theater, "Salome." As a group of prostitutes runs through a bizarre and bawdy version of the play -- which retells the story of Herod (Stratford Johns), his daughter and the execution of John the Baptist -- Wilde responds to the sexual advances of a handsome young man.
Director: Ken Russell
